The Monroe Institute has a unique, curated approach to mind and consciousness expansion.
In the beginning, it was all about technology with a lower case “t.” Hemi-Sync® helped participants like you enter into states of expanded awareness quickly, hold them as long as you desired, and freely navigate the nonphysical universe. It was a profound discovery that put Bob Monroe and the Monroe Institute out front in the emerging world of consciousness exploration!
Success Beyond the Technology
After 40 years of teaching Monroe programs, we’ve learned a lot about what makes for a successful experience. And we’ve come to understand that the technology, while important, is only part of the success formula.
Equally important are the tools, techniques and people (including you) engaged in the exploration. Our programs make an impact because we pay attention to teaching style, language use, setting, pacing and intention. Group energy, preparation and stillness—being in the present and thinking in the present tense—are also important.
Monroe’s morphic field is a complex web of experience that perpetually takes you to new depths in exploring human consciousness.
History has taught us that the depth of your practice and the intensity of your desire are vital to the success of your experience. You have to both be in the experience and observe the experience. You have to ask the right questions at the right time and be open to receiving the answers, or non-answers, as they unfold. You have to trust that insight will follow in profound and unexpected ways.
That’s the magic of the Monroe experience. That’s “Technology” with a capital “T.”
Collective Contributions to the Morphic Field
Throughout the decades, energetic contributions from you and millions of others who have benefited from Monroe technologies have created a vast, highly charged, resonant field. British biologist Rupert Sheldrake calls it a “morphic field.” That’s what happens when a paranormal influence facilitates “fields of information,” which reverberate and exchange data. Monroe’s morphic field contains all the accumulated knowledge, wisdom, skill and experience of Monroe explorers since Bob began asking the big questions and inviting you to explore.
The Next Generation of Monroe’s Morphic Field
Monroe’s morphic field is a complex web of experience that perpetually takes you to new depths in exploring human consciousness. It bypasses the question, “Am I there yet?” Instead, it focuses on, “What am I perceiving?” When in our morphic field, theoretical concepts of how the universe is organized naturally dissolve in favor of personal experience.
What got us this far is not what will carry us into the future. We must continue to invent next practices that will recast our best practices as the powerful legacy they are. Technology with a capital “T” will guide our way.
Rumi said it beautifully—
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase "each other"
doesn’t make any sense.
Here’s to your boundless exploration!
